? some down payment. the second act is some clear indication of what to do with medicare and defense stocks. they have to give a clear indication otherwise there's going to be some kind of credit downgrades in the months going into 2013. how about the greek deal? i fell out of my chair. this is a default in all but name. look at this. an extension of the loans for 15 years. 15 years. $245 billion of loans. deferral of interest payments for ten years. deferred for ten years. and a reduction in interest rates. imagine this. you have a 30-year mortgage at 3%. now instead of a 30-year mortgage you have a 45-year mortgage. instead of 3% you're paying 2%. how about no interest payments for the next ten years on your 30-year mortgage? that's the deal the greeks just signed. it's staggering because what's happening here is don't call it a default. it's not a default. it's a restructuring. the fact is this is the first step on forgiveness of the debt. they're not officially forgiving any debt. don't say that. they'll freak out on you. the fact is that the next step from here is going out into

. democrats don't seem to favor lowered defense budget and favor higher taxes for the rich and so we're done. i think we're done. >> after durbin speoke yesterda, if you're going to get a blueprint, he doesn't want entitlements be part of it for next year. >> it's the 1,000-point solution. maybe that will change their mind. durbin said no. norquist is saying no tax increase. what else is there? am i missing something? what am i missing? blankfe >> stallen made a lot of sense. mass murderer about you doesn't mean he didn't make sense. >> blankfein, kent, mayer, roberts of comcast. is there anything these guys can say to change their tune? to get people -- >> we're just past thanksgiving. let's give it a little time. things can change. we've seen lots of back and forth. everybody is establishing their negotiating position. there's still a negotiation to come in some way. i'll take the optimistic view. >> maybe that's where they are starting from. >> a reset button? >> we have yet to get in there and see whether in fact there can be the ability to knock heads around and really figure something
